My friend wish to buy a digital SLR camera. We got 2 option from friends and relatives. Nikon d300 and lumix g3. Which one is better. Can we take video by using it. Is there any limitation in video length.
If you’re looking for a camera that shoots videos and take stills aswell than you’ll have to go with Panasonic Lumix G3 because Nikon D300 does NOT have the option of shooting a video.
"Which one is better?" — I’ll have to say the Nikon D300 is better. It has faster auto-focus, significantly higher resolution screen, better image quality, much more lenses available, significantly more cross-type focus points, weather sealed, significantly more dynamic range, significantly larger sensor, more focus points, better color depth, has an optical viewfinder, shoots slightly faster and has faster max shutter speed. The disadvantages i see here is it doesn’t shoot movies and is more expensive compared to the Lumix G3.
I found this link where you can read the user review for Nikon D300 DX 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera:
You can buy it online from this link below:
But since you seem concerned about the video feature, i’d say you should go with Panasonic Lumix G3. I found a link where you can read a user review for it:

I hope this helps you make your choice.
